Saturday 14th June - Weekly Report No 4

Hi everyone,

Below is my report for this week and a link[1] to my blog post. I
haven't done as much as I'd like this week, but onwards and upwards I
guess. I've also updated my project page[2] with build
instructions for the current branch.

This week I haven't done as much as I'd hoped but I have started work on
modifying the Jokosher GUI to accommodate the Score Editor. This will be
achieved by having a GTK Notebook that will have tabs for the Audio
Editor and Score Editor (and can be extended to include any other GUI
additions). I've decided to move on to the GUI early as I think that I
won't get a good idea of what the Model needs to do further than the
stuff it already does without having a GUI in place. This will then show
me the deficiencies in the model and I can add more and more
functionality as I go along.

I've already added a Notebook to the code that should work when I've
finished subclassing the Event Viewer for the Score Editor. My aim is to
do it in shorter steps than I've done before as it can be pretty easy to
get swallowed up in GUI errors. I think my progress will be slower from
now on, but I'm glad that I can move on to something different that has
the potential to teach me a lot of new things.

I've also been reading about GTK things and trying to get to grips with
the GUI code for Jokosher now that I understand Python and GTK a lot
better. Hopefully next weeks report will include a lot more actual
things being done!.

I'm disappointed that I haven't got much to offer this week but I guess
that's how things roll sometimes.
